Last month I called DJ Stephens the “best dunker in D-League history” and now that the Memphis Grizzlies have signed the high-flyer with a NBA combine record 46″ vert, I can now call Stephens the “best dunker in the NBA right now.”
Stephens averaged 16.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.55 steals and 1.27 blocks in 34.3 minutes while shooting 55.0 percent from the field, 41.9 percent from three-point range and 73.0 percent from the free throw line for the Grizzlies’ D-League affiliate last season.
He also threw down this dunk, which I never get tired of looping.
